Larry Thomas, aka "The Soup Nazi"

Good morning, radio fans. Speaking of radio, I just finished up a wonderful interview with Kelly McCausey at WAHM Talk Radio.

I also have some great highlights for you today. Check it out:

  • Actor Larry Thomas, the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld, is on World Talk Live this evening at 6:00 p.m. EST. A few days ago, Liz Sheridan, who played Jerry’s mom, told us Jerry isn’t exactly reachable. Will Larry Thomas have a similar tale?
  • Today on AlternativeEnergy.com Radio: Greening the Olympics. China has spent billions of dollars on renewable power generation, green buildings and clean, efficient vehicles to improve Beijing’s air and water quality for the Olympics.
